The Lyrics

I was planning to parody the entire Mother Goose oeuvre, but after 30 or so decided against it. In cases of less well known rhymes, I've included the original
Plump with Mumps
(Humpty Dumpty)

Plump with mumps, he had satyr balls.
Mumps he trumped and now they are small.
Looked like a horse's or quadruped friends'.
If you get mumpy, to legs they'll suspend.

Trump the Chump
(Humpty Dumpty)

Trump the chump: ne'er cease to appall,
Trump the plump: wear a freakish fall.*
"Spy," in its short, fun satirical run
Dubbed chump Trump "short-fingered vulgarian."


Distressed Mary Is Quite Hairy
(Mistress Mary, Quite Contrary)

Distressed Mary is quite hairy.
Her unbarbered face grows
A beard so swell, a rasta yelled,
"Mon, let me braid it in corn rows!"

Hicks from the Sticks Dig Their Ox
(Hickory, Dickory, Dock)

Hicks from the sticks dig their Ox,*
They've ground it up from "rocks."
When one rock's done, another one.
Hicks rigor-stiff in a box.

*Oxycontin, AKA "hillbilly heroin"

Cushions I Bought Me Are Made of Silk
(Cushy Cow Bonny, Let Down Thy Milk)

Cushions I bought me are made of silk,
This guy's incontinent, full of milk.
He then take a seat so comfortably,
And takes a pee uncontrollably.

[Cushy cow bonny, let down thy milk,
And I will give thee a gown of silk;
A gown of silk and a silver tee,
If thou wilt let down thy milk to me.]
